Tim McGraw is working on his sixteenth studio album!
While co-hosting Country Countdown USA alongside Lon Helton this weekend, the country superstar revealed that he has already begun to work on his upcoming new album.
“I’m in the middle of it. I’ve probably mixed eight so far, and will record a few more soon,” McGraw shared.
McGraw went on to say that he wants to top his previous project before he teased that new music will be released sooner than we think.
”I’m always looking to beat what I did last time,” McGraw added. ”I’m sure we’ll have something off the new album here before too long. I don’t know when the album will drop.”
Previously, while chatting with USA Today in April, McGraw revealed that he has been working on a new album since he wrapped filming the Paramount+ Yellowstone prequel, 1883.
“After having [the 1883] script in my head and now I’m working on a new album as well,” McGraw admitted.
The forthcoming new album will mark McGraw first new album since the release of his 2020 project, Here On Earth, which features the singles “I Called Mama,” “Undivided” and “7500 OBO.”
His latest single, “7500 OBO,” continues to climb the charts at country radio and currently sits inside the Top 5 on the Mediabase charts. The music video for the nostalgic track stars his youngest daughter, Audrey.
“‘7500 OBO’ is about a guy who’s trying to get rid of his truck that he loves because there’s too many memories of his girlfriend in it. So ‘7500 OBO’ is ‘or best offer,’ of course.” McGraw explains of the track co-written by Nathan Spicer, Matt McGinn and Jennifer Schott. “So he’s just tryin’ to get rid of the truck because he can’t get in it anymore because all he thinks about is his girlfriend and all the great fun that they had and the times they had together. He keeps picturing her beside him in the truck, so he’s gotta get rid of the damn truck so he can move on with his life.”
The Louisiana native recently wrapped his McGraw Tour 2022 and has several appearances planned at upcoming fairs and festivals throughout the summer.
